More information aboutValheimThe long-awaited Hearth and Home updates have been anticipated for months. Developer Iron Gate AB struggled with viral success and the demand for new content and quick updates. Iron Gate AB is now ready to confirm that it has arrived.ValheimSeptember 16th will see the arrival of’s Hearth and Home’
Iron Gate AB shared an animated cinematic trailer made just for the reveal to celebrate Hearth and Home’s release date announcement. The trailer featured a Nordic warrior fighting a dragon and taking its head. It was followed by a dangerous journey back to his homestead, where friends and good food surrounded him. The effort was purely to mount the dragon’s head over the hearth because home is where your heart is.
Iron Gate AB released the trailer along with its monthly blog. Fans can also access the blog via Steam. Iron Gate AB outlined what players can expect from Valheim‘s upcoming update. Hearth and Home will feature new furniture, building pieces and food. The development team also teased two more new additions via screenshots. One is a new type of forge, and the other is a carved ornamental wolf head with jaws agape.
Iron Gate AB informs Valheim players they can get early glimpses at the Hearth and Home updates via its social media channels, but it also states that no official content list will be available. This is not bad news. Iron Gate AB is able to share this information without any problems, delays or ongoing issues. It’s an individual decision. Iron Gate wants Valheim gamers to explore all the new content.
Vilhelm has undergone other updates as part of the Hearth and Home Update. These include improvements to the food system and shields. There are now two types of food: stamina and health food. This allows players to pick the best food for them, using timed buffs rather than the food bar. Shields and blocking will be dependent on overall health, with the tower shield getting a buff just for tank characters who like defending.
The Valheim developer has hired three additional employees, bringing the total to eight. This includes a new animator and programmer as well as a QA leader. It could mean that Valheim updates could be faster and more polished than the Hearth and Home updates. It will be exciting to see where Valheim goes next.
